Blind to woundedness and wonder, most of us, much of the time,
Go through our lives asleep. But, when wonder explodes like the dawn,
It exposes us to the spectrum of wakefulness.
Living our lives asleep we remain unaware of the cold shower of gifts
poured into each moment. Likewise, we are oblivious to the Great Giver,
Who is Source of all gift.
Children of the Great Giver are great Thanks-givers. Thanks-giving is the very
first thing we do, first in a long line of a life of giving and giving back. Should we fail
to give thanks, we are unlikely to give anything else.
